Proposal: Give war-zone troops bigger raises
from The AirForceTimes
The Senate will soon wrestle with the question of whether it is better to provide bigger pay raises to troops in combat or smaller raises to the entire force. At issue is a proposed $150 pay raise in January for combat troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, versus an across-the-board increase that is slightly bigger than the White House's proposal, which would boost the pay raise of a young grunt by little more than $8 a month.
